Bafangool, NPH!

Steve Sax
Second Baseman, Los Angeles Dodgers
1988 Topps Big #46

Topps Fact: Steve was NL Rookie of the Year in 1982.
GMT Fact: Despite several forgettable TV appearances including roles on Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The Simpsons, Who's the Boss and Square Pegs, Steve never got over the fact he was passed over for the role of Vinny Delpino in favor of Max Castella on Doogie Howser, M.D. The other shoe dropped when Bobby Deniro laughed in his face (a little bit) when he expressed his interest in playing the overrated actor's son Calogero Anello in 1993's overrated stereotypical Italian-American flick A Bronx Tale.

In turn, he took his frustration out on Tommy Lasorda, defense and "hot trim everywhere."
